Golf membership

Become a member at one of Cheshire’s best golf clubs

Our membership packages are designed to help you get the most from your game. Whether you golf for pleasure or are a little more competitive, regular play on a course like this will hone your technique and ignite your enthusiasm.

Vale Royal Abbey adheres to the rich traditions and heritage of golf, with a variety of competitions and social events. Each section is run by an elected Sub-Committee Chairman with a council of elected members – their responsibility is to manage the handicaps of the members, organise the competition calendar and run a variety of associated social events.


There are weekly competitions for ladies and gentlemen on Saturdays, with a club medal on alternate Wednesdays during the summer season.

The Ladies’ Section hosts its own competitions every Tuesday throughout the year, along with numerous invitation and social events.

The Senior Section holds its own competitions every Thursday throughout the year as well as playing friendly matches, home and away, with a number of other local golf clubs.

Both the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s sections enter teams into local scratch and handicap inter-club tournaments.


Golf club members may welcome up to three guests at any one time for a limited number of occasions at reduced green fees.

Becoming a Member

New members at Vale Royal go through a simple joining procedure.

The first stage is to complete an application form along with payment of the appropriate joining fee and pro-rata subscription (please note, the subscription year runs from October 1st to September 30th). Once received by the Club you can begin to use the course and associated facilities, including the Clubhouse.

After this, your name, along with those of your proposer and seconder, will be displayed in the Clubhouse for 14 days to allow existing members to make representation on your application and you may be asked to attend an interview with the Membership Committee. While it is rare for any issues to be raised the Membership Committee reserves the right to reject your application at which point your membership would cease and all monies paid returned in full.
